December 2023 Review: Voignier (White) California

VineCo Original Series: Viognier (White) California

What are we drinking?

We’re sipping on VineCo’s Viognier (pron. “vee-own-yeah”) from California – part of the Original Series. This white wine is a real treat, especially for someone like me who usually leans toward reds. It’s a unique experience, breaking the mold with a blend of floral scents, ripe peaches, and a hint of apricot. Despite being a white wine, it’s surprisingly rich and not your typical light option.

Tasting Notes:

  • Aromatic Mix: The wine opens with a delightful mix of floral scents, reminiscent of a bouquet in full bloom. Ripe peaches and a subtle hint of apricot add a fruity layer that keeps things interesting.
  • Rich Flavors: On the palate, Viognier surprises with a rich and complex flavor profile. Fruity notes evolve into a honey-like sweetness, accompanied by a delicate touch of citrus that dances on the taste buds.

Aging Potential:
Viognier, known for aging gracefully, promises an even more nuanced experience over time. Try decanting this white wine 20-30 minutes beforehand, or consider setting aside a few bottles for a couple of months to witness the wine’s transformation and the development of deeper, more complex flavours.

Food Pairings:
This versatile wine complements light dishes exquisitely. Pair it with seafood, roasted chicken, or creamy pasta to enhance your dining experience. It will also help take the edge off any spicy foods, like Thai prawn curry. Viognier’s vibrant acidity and layered taste make it a delightful match for a variety of culinary delights.

Sip, Savor, and Age:
To sum it up, VineCo’s Viognier is a delightful departure from the usual – at least for me! Whether you’re a seasoned white wine enthusiast or a curious red wine aficionado, this Viognier invites you to savour the elegance in each sip. Cheers to the unexpected!
